My second most difficult challenge was not difficult by the act but was difficult by character. I needed to pick a world topic that bothered me and I still have half a mind to go on a tangent about the Sandy Hook shooting that happened in Connecticut years ago. The event is supposed to be relevant to recent news, and display a problem people are having in a place far far away from our home land. ( no matter where you are just make sure it is another country if you partake in the challenge.) I have yet to write up on this number on my list which is number twenty nine if you are curious because it’s so difficult for me to find one subject that is distinctively a problem worldwide that I can say is truly an issue on a societal level aside from technology.
The last difficult challenge for me was keeping at it. Life often finds its fleeting hands pushing us away from writing like a gust of wind can flutter a feather farther than we could run in a second. I found it more difficult trying to make sure I meet each goal or post in a week hard because I had to make sure to jot down what I did that week, or to write the post based on pure memory. However, I think it made me challenge my own perceptions of life, and make me more accepting of people overall.
Just like everyone has a reason for picking the job they want to study I have a reason for picking up the topic of humanism. I have a sob story which is kind of like a river that never stops getting overflowed. My mother is a handicapped woman having had to raise two children on her own with only a one thousand dollar a month income. It taught me self sacrifice, acceptance, and the struggle of having to find a way to make ends meet. Most of all it made me think that human nature is a complicated beast. We are both kind, and greedy. I wanted to spread light on helping other human beings are struggling like me because life is not easy, nor is it kind to those who are less fortunate. The topic choice is more to help me keep a positive light about humanity than to believe in the negativity of human beings. Our human hearts need compassion as much as we need sleep.
I mean we see plenty of tragedies on television with a lot of violent acts being spotlighted on the news. Our personalities have good points and bad points with no one being perfect not even me. So, I believe toxicity exists because people continue to feed it.
Alas, after reading all of this I am also writing posts for a creative questions series. So you may find a few dimes of information in that too.
